dev kit for BT848 based TV cards under Win32

i have a PCTV card by Modular Technology, and i need to get the programming kit for it so i can control the tv card in my own application (under either 'Win95 or NT). thing is, the tech support people at MT weren't exactly helpful, and i was wondering if anyone out there can help. i'm specifically looking for the dev kit that Brooktree makes. (btw: i know it exists, since my card uses it, but i just haven't got the headers or import libraries)

btw2: i already tried Brooktree's and Hauppauge's website, but found nothing useful there.
btw3: i know there are drivers/sdks for Linux but i'm a bit sick of it right now, plus the fact that the font support under X is rubbish (when i last used it). and i'm not that used to X.

You can get a PDK from Booktree for the BT848, it comes with
the capture card, driver info for vfw.

christsui: could you provide me with some contact info? as far as i can remember, Brooktree doesn't officially exist anymore - their website just points to their parent company, ie. Rockwell, and i cant find much there.
btw: you said a pdk *with* a capture card? i just need the software / info bits - i'm not paying for another tv card! (i'm a 16-yr old college student - where the smeg am i supposed to get the  money from?!)
